Metal Refurbishments


Metal Repairs

Our team created and patented a unique system that ensures we can restore properties from the safety of the ground

We know the importance of meticulous care and attention when it comes to property metal refurbishments and external redecorations. That is why here at Spectrum Specialist Support, we pride ourselves on delivering the most comprehensive metal restoration services possible. Our full-service approach can help to transform the exterior of any property, ensuring windows, doors, and framework look fantastic and can last for many years. 

Our highly experienced team is fully certified and insured, and we have created and patented a unique system that ensures we can restore properties from the safety of the ground. This not only reduces the need to erect costly and time-consuming scaffolding, but it also allows us to complete restorations and cleaning more swiftly. 

We know the importance of ensuring external redecorations are completed to the highest quality possible. Maintaining and restoring the façade of any property helps to prevent damage from continuous exposure to the elements. Our Spectrum Specialist Support team is able to work on everything from iconic architecture to modern new builds. 

It is this experience and innovation that helped us complete a recent project from a previous client, a facilities manager near York.


The Project

 We were contacted by the York-based facilities manager to conduct comprehensive property metal refurbishments. The primary focus of the project was to complete a full external window frame refurbishment, and the client contacted us to undertake the project, having previously worked with them on another project. 

The Site

The external redecorations required a comprehensive approach, and there were many challenges that our experienced team had to overcome. The windowsills were in very poor condition and required extensive stripping back to ensure that they could then be primed and restored. 


The Logistics

The paint we used was PPG SigmaCover 2, which is otherwise known as Amerlock 2. This high-quality paint offers high-solid, high-performance self-priming. The low-VOC coating can be used on a range of materials, including carbon steel, concrete, masonry, galvanised steel, non-ferrous metals and stainless steel. 


The SigmaCover 2 paint was the perfect solution for the windowsills, thanks to offering very high surface tolerance and abrasion resistance. It also provides very good adhesion levels and fantastic resistance to temperatures, ensuring it is durable against the elements for many years. The paint is also available in over 500 colours, which allowed us to perfectly match the existing colours of the exterior. 


In order to ensure we could provide the client with the most cost-effective solution possible, we were able to restore the frames to their original colour. This meant we only had to redecorate the worst affected areas, ensuring the property was able to look its very best. 

Access Solutions

To ensure we could deliver the most cost-effective solution possible for the client, we were able to complete the project without the need of erecting scaffolding. In order to do this, we completed the external redecoration using our IRATA trained abseiling service. 

Our rope access team were able to reach every aspect of the property with the minimal amount of disruption. This was very important, as the high-rise windows would have required extensive scaffolding to reach in traditional methods, and with residents living in the property during the project, we had to minimise the impact it would have on their lives. 

Not only did abseiling ensure that we could work more effectively, but it also removed the need to have eye-sore scaffolding around the property. This also meant that we would not need any heavy equipment during the project, preventing residents from being impacted by any noise pollution. 



Going Above and Beyond for Our Clients

Despite the many challenges that were posed by the project, one of the biggest highlights was seeing our team overcome these to deliver high-quality property metal refurbishments. Another highlight was being able to minimise the disruption to the residents. 

We know how frustrating it can be to have your home surrounded by ugly scaffolding. Not only is it unsightly, but it also takes a long time to erect, which only adds further disruption to residents. Our IRATA-certified abseiling team were able to minimise this disruption by completely removing the need for extensive scaffolding. Abseiling also allowed our team to reach the high-rise windows with ease. 

Our final highlight was being able to give our clients the most cost-effective project possible. We were able to perfectly colour match our paint with the rest of the exterior, which helped ensure that we could fully restore the windowsills.
